visual endorsement of chris christie. chris christie is obviously not endorsing barack obama in any explicit way, but he said a lot of kind things about the president in the last 48 hours. you have a bunch of centrist kind of pseudo republicans, who knows where they are politically, but the cumulative effect i think is powerful. >> is there obama momentum right now, chuck? you score these pretty straight right down the middle. >> it's funny. i call it -- there's sort of the campaign insider's zeitgeist, if you will, and there's this assumption whether you heard haley barbour say it publicly, i talked to strategists on both sides, on the republican side worry about it privately and the democratic side hopeful for it. they think there's some sort of bounce for the president on sandy. nobody can point to any metric yet to prove this, but when you think about where things were a week ago, a week ago there was this assumption that, boy, all the intangibles here at the end were going to -- >> let me -- >> -- to romney. now it feels there's intangibles that may favor the president. >> i ge
showing the massive destruction along the new jersey shore. governor chris christie called the impact on his state unthinkable and said it would take months to recover. the storm swept houses from their foundation and left parts of the coast under water. new york city also dealing with devastating floods. the subway remains closed after damage to the system was called the worst in its 108-year history. meanwhile, massive fire in a beachfront neighborhood in queens, new york, destroyed nearly 100 homes overnight and into the morning. firefighters have been blocked from getting to the fire due to the high floodwaters. and as we told you yesterday, a construction crane that collapsed due to high winds remain dang top a 74-floor luxury high rise, thousands were ordered to leave nearby buildings. nearly 8 million homes are still without power today across 20 states. the worst of it is in new york, new jersey and pennsylvania. right now i want to bring in dillon dryer. thank you for joining us. just run through a brief outline of what's going on. give us a sense of the depth and the duratio
that chris christie, if i can be political for a second in the midst of this, chris christie is the guy who gave the keynote address at the republican convention. and chris christie has nothing but -- has had nothing so far nothing but good things to say about the president. that's nothing the president needs to talk about. that's nothing any of his aides or advisers or campaign people need to talk about. but it won't go unnoticed as chuck says in this media environment. >> let's look at what governor christie of new jersey had to say today on the "today" show and on "morning joe." >> i was on the phoned a might nid again with the president personally. he's expedited the declaration of new jersey as a disaster area. the president has been outstanding in this. the president has been all over this and deserves great credit. i have been on the phone with him yesterday personally three times. he gave me his number at the white house and told me to call him if i needed anything and he absolutely needs it. it's been very good working with the president and his administration. >> he also responded
is heading to new jersey. he'll join governor chris christie to see the devastation on the ground himself. meanwhile, governor romney, he's back on the trail in florida. there's still just six days until the election. what does that tell us about where the campaign stakes are really in play this morning. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, october 31st, 2012. happy halloween. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to may first reads of the morning. we're still a long way from recovery. today after hurricane sandy's devastation we're seeing the very first signs of a return to what may be some normalcy as millions attempt to put the pieces back together. this hour new york city mayor michael bloomberg will ring the opening bell at the new york stock exchange which plans to be fully operational despite blackouts and flooding in lower manhattan. two of the area's major airports, jfk and newark in new jersey have opened with some limited service this morning. but new york's laguardia airport remains closed after major flooding. overall, nearly 19,000 flights can
. optionsxpress by charles schwab. >>> new jersey governor chris christie is helicoptering across the state touring the devastation to assess the damage. >> no question in my mind given the report that i've seen so far, that the devastation that's happened to new jersey is beyond what's happened to anyone else, at least with the reports i've seen so far and should come as no shock since the storm made landfall here. >> joining me now on the phone, new jersey congressman frank malone. thanks so much. i know your district covers significant parts of middlesex and mon mouth including bayshore and 16 communities along the atlantic ocean. tell me, what is the extent of the damage, when can people return to their homes? what have you seen so far? >> the damage is really catastrophic, andrea. i just left union beach which is one of the towns along the bayshore on the sandy hook bay and the homes within maybe three or four blocks of the beach, many are completely destroyed. the waves carried some of them away. others are just, you know, pounded to a pulp. i've never seen anything like it. in long b
're dealing with a chris christie, a michael bloomberg, and an andy cuomo. these are three guys who are not shy. and if they think the federal government was not helping them, was not being aggressive, they thought the president wasn't on top of this or wasn't doing everything that they thought the federal government could do, don't you think they'd run, not walk to a tv camera and let people know? so you're in a unique situation here with a hard-hit area, so three very politically savvy, media savvy governors in the most important media market in the world. you don't want to mess this up. so i think this is a case where it's good politics not to play politics and just throw yourself into disaster relief because you're dealing with a high population area that, frankly, you mess this up, the whole world is going to know about it. >> yeah, howard, what's impressive to me is he's going to new jersey today. he went to jersey. we saw the pictures. not to one of those states that we got a little tired covering basically, the so-called swing states. he went to the states in need today. >>
to make landfall in one hour right near us. let me show you a picture. this is chris christie who is affected by this situation. he's speaking very positively of a democratic president. >> i thank the president for his telephone call inquiring about how things were going here and assured him that things were going well. so far he invited me to call him at any time if things are not going well. and so we'll make sure that we do that and appreciate the president's outreach today in making sure that we know that he's watching this and is concerned about the health and welfare and safety of the people of the state of new jersey. >> and, chuck, here's the president himself speaking on this topic of the weather today. here he is, president obama. >> this is going to be a big storm, a difficult storm, and the great thing about america is that when we go through tough times like this, we all pull together. we look out for our friends, our neighbors, and we set aside whatever issues we may have otherwise to make sure that we respond appropriately and with swiftness and that's exactly what
. this is the amusement park at seaside heights before and after the storm. governor chris christie toured his battered state by air, described what happened as unthinkable. >> the devastation that's happened to new jersey is beyond what's happened to anyone else, at least from the reports i've seen so far. that should come as no shock since the storm made landfall here. >> reporter: it hit just south of atlantic city, the gambling and tourism city, leaving residents who defied the mandatory evacuation order stranded. dozens had to be stranded from shelters of last resort where the power failed. in northern new jersey, more search and rescue, after a tidal surge pushed a river over its banks. the water rose five feet in a matter of minutes. >> it's like a lake in our basement. and it filled up to our stairs. >> there was no phone lines, the electricity was out, all our phones were dead, basically, we couldn't call nobody. >> reporter: across the state, 2.4 million customers, 60% of the population have no power. the worst of it was probably right along the coast, in towns like point pleasant beach, wher
transit. governor chris christie of new jersey announced within the last half hour that the path trains that run between new york and new jersey, he expects they will be out for seven to ten days. seven to ten days, and that is going to make it very difficult for those commuters who come from new jersey to work in manhattan. it will make it very difficult for them to get to work. mayor bloomberg mentioned some of the bridges are open anding they' ing and williamsburg bridge, the manhattan bridge and the brooklyn bridge, they are now all open to traffic, but again, you know, the mayor says, look, if you don't have a reason to go out don't go out because it is a scene of destruction here in new york city. i can tell you that as i drove down here, down the island of manhattan i was struck by all of the tree limbs that are down, the scaffolding is down. there is debris everywhere and once you get below 34th street it is dark because that is where the power is out in lower manhattan. more than a quarter million people there are without power this morning and it has yet to be restored. that m

conference yesterday in new jersey, governor chris christie mentioned all of his favorite shore sights having grown up on the jersey shore as a kid. one of the ones he mentioned was the fun town pier, sea side height, six miles up the beach. this sign is a part of the fun town pier, a necessary stop for any jersey shore summer vacation for generations of us. the damage is dramatic, far from the beach. inland, there is street flooding, trees ripped from the ground. jack and sharon kathcart who have lived here for a long time, spent the day drying their clothes. >> i said i want to go, she said she wanted to stay, i said i have to stay if she does because she is my wife. >> reporter: but there were bright spots to see, like the one we saw as we passed by, bill mullens, who had a flag ceremony on his front yard, blocks away from the atlantic ocean, bill mullens feels lucky to be here. >> i always try to express it, what is it about the jersey shore? >> i don't think you can describe it, unless you live on the jersey shore, we're blessed to be on the ocean, a double edged sword, of course, but fo
is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one into baskets before being hoisted to safety. now let's go to breezy point. a neighborhood of queens which looks
republican governors bob mcdonnell and chris christie, why not the democratic governors too. you knew what they meant, calling people he knew and was trying to get some updates but at the same time it looked a little too partisan, wait a minute, only focused on the states with republican governors and don't want any of that. this is a case they decided there is no good that comes out of campaigning even if you're out there on your own, that you can only create a problem for you and only going to get attention if you do something that is out of context or out of sorts. >> chuck, what do you make of that, of that footage from the primary campaign when romney is talking about basically handing -- ending federal funding for fema and handing over disaster relief to the states. do you think that comes back to bite him later on in the week after the hurricane has sort of passed through most of the u.s.? >> i don't know if there's enough time, if this -- you try to turn this into a campaign tactic, whether this is the case. i mean i think that fema is something that is quite popular in the state o
and left that new jersey governor chris christie has said favorable things about the obama administration's efforts in those early days after hurricane sandy. republicans worried that christie saying anything favorable about obama is politically disloyal need to remember that a governor's first responsibility is to his or her state and its people. those in the media looking to determine political winners and losers in this situation should stop. we republicans ought to be proud of public officials who, like christie, are faithful to the job they're elected to do. thank you, haley barbour. thank you, alex, for picking that. >> the governor of mississippi during katrina. >> he would know. and it all stops, right, in time of crisis? >> almost two minds of that. >> why are you of two minds about that? >> on the one hand, haley barbour did go through the crucible of katrina and bonded with his state and recognized the importance of federal and state cooperation. on the other hand, the notion that haley barbour's big giant brand not having to think about politics, i'm a little skeptical of. >>
chris christie has said, mike bloomberg, the appeal to people who are refusing to evacuate because they are putting first responders in danger and as i'm looking at the pictures of you, ron, the shape of that beach along the jersey shore is never going to be the same. this is going to have to be restored in some way because the enormous erosion already is being washed away in front of our eyes. >> andrea, this ocean, the shore here, extends out about 100 yards. it did yesterday at least. it doesn't anymore. how much of that is going to be destroyed and washed away, is unclear. and yes, yesterday there were a lot of people out here who were taking pictures, trying to get one last look because it is an incredible sight to see. i'm not encouraging anybody to come down here. the police were really trying to tell people, please get away. because again, that is one of the worst case scenarios if people stay behind, the first responders have to come in here, risk their own lives to get them out. so again, driving through town, at least here, as far as we could go, because much of this par
, it was new jersey that took the direct hit from this storm. the governor of that state, chris christie is holding a news conference right now bringing reporters up to speed on the damage. we had the chance to talk to governor christie a little bit earlier this morning. i started by asking him about the state of his state. >> we have over 2.4 million people without power across the state. we've had flooding in the new york bay areas, rareton bay. new jersey area is 59% without power. it all came from the tidal surge that came through raredon bay and new york bay, and the same thing affecting new york city, and we have a battered, battered new jersey shore that i hope to tour a little later on today, but i think the losses are going to be almost incalculable. >> i was watching reporters all afternoon and evening from long branch and point pleasant beach and atlantic city, and do you have a lot of people that you think you're going to have to go out and account for this morning? search and rescue missions to find people that you haven't heard from? >> we are in the midst of search and res
of the century. matt? >> al roquener point pleasant beach, new jersey. al, thank you very much. chris christie is the governor of that state of new jersey. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> you guys took a direct hit, and i know you'll probably not know the extent of the damage until daylight and you get to see the areas by ground and by air, but based on the reports you've been getting overnight, what's the state of your state? >> it's a major disaster, matt. we have over 2.4 million people without power across the state. we've had flooding in the raritan bay and newark area. the city of newark is 95% without power due to substation flooding. all that came from the tidal surge that came up from the storm through raritan bay and newark bay, the same thing you see affecting new york city, and we have a battered, battered new jersey shore that i hope to tour a little bit later on today, but i think the losses are going to be almost incalculable. >> yeah. i was watching reports all afternoon and evening, governor, from long branch and point pleasant beach and atlantic city, and do yo
in the tri-state area, three extraordinarily aggressive governors, two democrats, one republican. but chris christie -- >> good way of putting it. >> cuomo and malloy is going to be very aggressive and work very close with the president and the white house because they are concerned about the people, not just the politics of it, they're concerned about the people. but those are highly competent, very aggressive governors. >> chuck, explain about this campaign shifting to the midwest in the final stretch because obviously north carolina's now out of play. virginia's out of play. new hampshire's out of play. unless, of course, the president goes to visit damaged areas in virginia. >> he could do disaster -- yes, there is some of that. >> expect that, by the way. >> right. but i mean, already look at how romney's reacted just with his scheduling, right? they canceled virginia and went to ohio. you know, there's really no other places to go. he did a florida event. i would expect that he pops back down to florida one more time. but i think the president has something to do right now. the presid
with the republican governors of states impacted on the storm,er name dropped chris christie and bob mcdonnell. the president will be in the situation room dealing with fema and that fallout. this is the october surprise but we don't know what it all means in eight days. savannah? >> chuck todd, thank you. joe scarborough and mika are hosts of "morning joe." >> one thing we do know, bill clinton is going to be very nervous about having to fill all that space by himself today without barack obama. he's going to do great in orlando, obviously. but mitt romney had momentum. you look at ohio, ohio poll that came out, had him dead locked. minnesota poll, three. gets the endorsement from "des moines register." in that state that's a big deal. this is mitt romney's best weekend and it stops. the momentum stops. you don't know how it freezes the race but you certainly know that it's a new dynamic into the race and it changes everything with a week to go. >> the question is how. a lot of people have different theories which candidate it benefits. ate moment for the president to be commander-in-c
